GVU ANNUAL REPORT
Computing technology research takes on many forms in the GVU
Center, whether it’s deciphering the social media stratosphere,
W\[[PUN([SHU[H»ZW\ISPJ[YHUZP[PUMVYTH[PVUH[`V\YÄUNLY[PWZ
advancing wearable computing, or a score of other high-concept
applications and prototypes that are advancing how technology
impacts our lives.
This academic year our researchers broke new ground on how to
get the most out of technology interactions. This snapshot of our
community of researchers shows a small sample of computing
possibilities becoming reality through the collaborative and dynamic
environments at Georgia Tech and the GVU Center.

Where in the World are Young People Using the Internet?
Georgia Tech and the International Telecommunication
Union (ITU) conducted a study to measure, by country,
the world’s “digital natives,” people born around the
time the personal computer was introduced. Associate
Professor Mike Best0U[LYUH[PVUHS(ɈHPYZHUK0U[LYHJ[P]L
Computing) co-authored the study, part of the Measuring
the Information Society 2013 Report, which found only 30
percent of the world’s population between the ages of 15
HUK`LHYZVSKOHZILLUHJ[P]LVUSPULMVYH[SLHZ[Ä]L
years. A key statistic Best says is the number of digital
natives as compared to a country’s total population because countries with a
OPNOWYVWVY[PVUVM`V\UNWLVWSLHSYLHK`VUSPULHYLWVZP[PVULK[VKLÄULHUK
lead the digital age. (Iceland’s 13.9 percent is #1 with the United States’ 13.1
percent ranking sixth.)
Inkjet-Based Circuits at Fraction of Time and Cost
Georgia Tech, the University of Tokyo and Microsoft
Research collaborators have developed a novel method
to rapidly and cheaply make electrical circuits by
WYPU[PUN[OLT^P[OJVTTVKP[`PURQL[WYPU[LYZHUKVɈ
the-shelf materials. For about $300 in equipment costs,
anyone can produce working electrical circuits in the
60 seconds it takes to print them. The technique, called
instant inkjet circuits, allows the printing of arbitraryZOHWLKJVUK\J[VYZVU[VYPNPKVYÅL_PISLTH[LYPHSZHUKJV\SKHK]HUJL
the prototyping skills of non-technical enthusiasts and novice hackers.
Georgia Tech researchers included Ben Cook, (pictured, PhD ECE 14),
PhD CS student Cheng Zhang, and Regents’ Professor Gregory Abowd
(Interactive Computing).
Research Reveals Phrases that Pay on Kickstarter
Researchers at Georgia Tech studying the burgeoning
phenomenon of crowdfunding have learned that the
language used in online fundraising hold surprisingly
predictive power about the success of such
campaigns. As part of their study of more than 45,000
projects on Kickstarter, PhD CS student Tanushree
Mitra and Assistant Professor Eric Gilbert
(Interactive Computing) reveal dozens of phrases
that pay and a few dozen more that may signal the

participation and authority, generated the greatest amount of funding.
Integrating Real-Time Information for Metro Atlanta Public Transit
The mobile app OneBusAway, which tracks public transportation in
real time, added arrival times for MARTA trains in 2014 in addition to
the MARTA buses and Georgia Tech shuttles already featured in the
app. The app also added frequency data for the new Atlanta Streetcar
route (which opened at the end of 2014) and is working with the
Streetcar to equip vehicles to provide real-time transit information.
OneBusAway is being integrated into Atlanta’s transit network by
Georgia Tech researchers, led by Assistant Professor Kari Watkins
(Civil and Environmental Engineering). In addition to providing users
with information, the program is used to understand the impacts of
real-time information on riders. The open-source code has a growing national footprint
with the app being used in other major spots such as New York, Seattle, Tampa, and
elsewhere.
Advancing Digital Games Technology and Scholarship
The launch of the [email protected] initiative brought together the
institute’s sprawling gaming ecosystem and provided a single portal for
information on Georgia Tech’s mix of research, education, and culture in
gaming (games.gatech.edu). Led by Associate Professor Celia Pearce
(Digital Media) and Assistant Professor Mark Riedl (pictured, Interactive
Computing), [email protected] is designed to support the institute’s
leading game researchers, faculty and students in advancing digital game
exploration and development.
Do You Read Terms of Service? Maybe You Should
Researchers found that internet users face considerable
KPɉJ\S[`PU\UKLYZ[HUKPUN^OH[JVU[LU[[OL`NP]LH^H`^OLU
signing up for free online services. A Georgia Tech study
by PhD HCC candidate Casey Fiesler and Professor Amy
Bruckman (Interactive Computing) on Terms of Service for
popular websites shows that when posting content to the
likes of LinkedIn, craigslist or IMDB, users may be giving
away more than they think, including the right to take back
the data once it is made available. Researchers note that
with so many people posting everything from status updates
to digital art online, intellectual property rights are increasingly important to the end user.
Robotic Prosthesis Turns Drummer into a Three-Armed Cyborg
Professor Gil Weinberg (Music and Interactive Computing) has created
a robot that can be worn by amputees, allowing its technology to be
embedded into humans. The robotic drumming prosthesis has motors
[OH[WV^LY[^VKY\TZ[PJRZ;OLÄYZ[Z[PJRPZJVU[YVSSLKIV[OWO`ZPJHSS`
by the musicians’ arms and electronically using electromyography
(EMG) muscle sensors. The other stick “listens” to the music being
played and improvises. Weinberg says the human-prosthesis
combination creates a cyborg in which both human and machine arms collaborate and
improvise to create music in realtime.
Technology Design for Health and Wellness among Immigrant Women
PhD HCC student Deana Brown and Professor Beki Grinter
(Interactive Computing) collaborated with immigrant women
from the Caribbean to identify health and wellness challenges
they faced and to let the participants conceptualize
technologies to help them manage these issues. Stress,
KPL[HY`JOHSSLUNLZZWLJPÄJHSS`VILZP[`TLU[HSOLHS[OHUK
domestic abuse formed the focal themes for the design
sessions. Their design approaches emphasized rebuilding
support structures, reducing stressors through entertainment and relaxation and
encouraging positive gradational lifestyle changes. This work has led to the creation
of new technologies that support rather than replace social solutions to the health and
wellness challenges faced by these and other immigrant women.
Email Overload in the Age of Gmail
PhD CS candidate Catherine Grevet (pictured) and Assistant
Professor Eric Gilbert (Interactive Computing) show that email
overload is still a problem today. Georgia Tech and Google
researchers analyzed the state of email overload in the 21st Century,
and compared personal with work email accounts. They found that
work email tends to be status overloaded and that disorganization
in work email doesn’t come from volume but is driven more by high
unread counts. Personal email is status and also type overloaded.

related to job searches, money transactions, etc. Their research suggests new
ways to redesign existing email systems to better support the complex electronic
communication needs of people today.
New Game Studio Puts Games in Front of Audiences
The Georgia Tech Game Studio launched with a mission
to enable student game developers to conceptualize,
develop, and ship original games. Led by Blair
MacIntyre (Interactive Computing) and Ian Bogost
(Digital Media), the studio focuses on exploring a broad
spectrum of play opportunities, rapidly prototyping game

Mobile Solution for Chronic Disease Management has High Adoption
My Journey Compass was designed by PhD HCC student Maia
Jacobs (pictured), Postdoctoral Fellow James Clawson, and
Professor Beth Mynatt (Interactive Computing) to increase patient
engagement for improving health outcomes and create a potential
gateway to impact chronic disease management. The researchers
tested the tool with a small group of breast cancer patients and
included a suite of preinstalled applications and health management
resources on Nexus 7 Android tablets. Designed and deployed
with health care providers, the high adoption rate of the tablet tool directly correlated
to its customization (for health and non-health purposes), mobile use, balance of
information that was relevant and not overwhelming, and privacy advantages.

Computer-mediated communication and its
dominance in society are driving fundamental changes
in the nature of written language, a phenomenon
Assistant Professor Jacob Eisenstein (Interactive
Computing) examines using research methods at the
intersection of machine learning and sociolinguistics.
His research on Twitter has found that rather

linguistic innovations such as emoticons and abbreviations. Eisenstein’s
recent work links language variation to social networks, showing how the
density and strength of social network ties predicts which linguistic norms
each individual will adopt.

the test. The results showed that anger and happiness lowered perceived
safety levels and produced more driving errors when compared to fear or
neutrality. The work advances the development of a model for regulating
emotions and creating adaptive interfaces for drivers.
Getting Dressed: Simulating Activities of Daily Living
Clothing oneself is considered essential to maintaining a functional
independent life. Associate Professor Karen Liu (Interactive Computing) is
aiming to recreate this unique human behavior through physical simulation
and eventually enable assistive robots to dress real humans. The work
involves designing motor control algorithms for dressing upper and lower
body for oneself and others. Beyond robotic applications, the research
is expected to expand the current biomechanical knowledge in human
coordination control mechanisms, to advance the control algorithms for
high-dimensional, nonlinear systems in control theory, and to enhance the
state-of-art simulation techniques for manipulating deformable objects.

GVU researchers are applying the power of computing to strengthen local communities and enhance community
engagement and social awareness. Our research on Civic Computing is focused on creating thriving communities
where we live, work, and travel; not only is such work vital to our future culture and infrastructure, but it also helps
chart the future of social media and other computing technologies. GT researchers in Civic Computing tackle the
work in many ways, a few of which are highlighted here.
